Industrial laundries are designed to stop infections

Danish Food Cluster member, DFD – De Forenede Damvaskerier – is still operating its laundries during the corona crisis. In fact, the laundries play an important role in disinfecting uniforms used in the food sector through correct laundry procedures.

Good hygiene behavior is already a regular part of everyday life at DFD’s laundries. Therefore, the basis for handling textiles exposed to infection is already very optimal.

The laundries operating within the food sector complies with all sector standards, i.e. ISO 22000, ISO 9001 and DS 2451-8 among others.

Through continuous inspection, traceability and documentation at the hygiene-certified laundries, safety is provided throughout the supply chain.

Extended measures during COVID-19

All DFD-laundries already follow washing processes and procedures that ensures disinfection and hygienically clean textiles. This forms an excellent basis for handling COVID-19 in the laundry deliveries for all sectors. Extended measures during COVID-19 are:

  • The work areas in the production sites are divided into smaller entities to minimize the risk of infection between employees.
  • Good hygiene principles for all employees have been strengthened during the COVID-19 period, and all visits that are not critical to operations are postponed.

Further information about DFD’s general measures during COVID-19, including FAQ, is to be found at the website here (in Danish).
